UMMS active attacker training sessions coming this fall

August 1, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Many of you are aware of the false alarm on-campus incident that took place on March 16. What would you do in a similar situation? What would law enforcement be doing? How would you know an “all clear” had been issued?

To help answer these and other questions, five active attacker training sessions have been scheduled at the U-M Medical School with officer Kaitlin Deslatte from the U-M Department of Public Safety & Security (DPSS) to be held at the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year.

Registration is not required.

  • Tuesday, Sept. 10: 10 – 11 a.m., Buhl 5915
  • Wednesday, Sept. 11: Noon – 1 p.m., NCRC 300, room 376 (feel free to bring a lunch)
  • Thursday, Sept. 12: 3 – 4 p.m., Taubman Library 2901
  • Wednesday, Sept. 18: 6 – 7 p.m., Taubman Library 2901
  • Saturday, Sept. 21: 11 a.m. – noon, Taubman Library 2901

“Safety is everyone’s responsibility and this active attacker training is important as it will equip you with some basic skills to react and response in the unlikely event of the worst case scenario,” said Deslatte. “DPSS is always here to help, so never hesitate to reach to us 24/7. Trust your instincts — if you see something, say something.”
